We can’t resist buying our children clothing and accessories with super cute animals on them — but what if those items could actually help a furry friend in need?
That’s the philosophy behind the new family-run website AnnieWear.com.
The company makes and sells it’s own adorable animal-themed children’s clothing and accessories — inspired by the family’s own rescue pup Annie — and donates a portion of proceeds to pets charities.
All of the products have a homespun feel which make them perfect as unique gifts for children or expectant moms (you’ll be a stand-out at any baby shower!).
The onesies and T-shirts, which are graced with a cartoon caricature of the sweet golden retriever, are made with 100 percent ring spun cotton and say things like “My doggie is adopted – Rescue shelters rule!” or “Puppy = Cute, Baby = Cute-squared.”
The site, created by cousins Laurene Parlatore and Pam Pinta of Annapolis, Md., also offers a wide range of hand-selected products that they didn’t make themselves but that mesh with their super-cute agenda: including children’s toys, books, towels, hats and special treats for mom. It’s definitely the place to stock up on necessities for your budding animal-lover!
